This week, we have Kristen Stieffel, author of the debut novel, Alara's Call.

Kristen Stieffel is a freelance writer and editor specializing in science fiction and fantasy. She’s the associate editor of Havok, a flash fiction magazine focused on the speculative genres. Kristen provides author mentoring and a full range of editorial services in multiple genres for both the general market and the Christian submarket. Kristen is a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and Christian Editor Connection and is a Word Weavers International mentor.

In Episode 67:

  • Kristen's impetus for writing Alara's Call.
  • How President Dwight Eisenhower factors in to Kristen's book.
  • Kristen admits how long it took to write the book.
  • How her setting was designed to fit the story.
  • Mentor characters yelling at the main character's father!
  • How long does it take to cremate a horse? (Aaron isn't telling PETA.)
  • We get into an argument about Kristen's favorite spec fic quote.
  • Aaron refrains from going full über-nerd! (We're all grateful.)
